Ferdinand

Dear Ferdinand, this is the biggest bird I have created. He’s currently mounted into a 12” x 14” box frame. Like the Sun bird he’s designed as a necklace however with an 11 ½” wing span I imagine only someone with stature would be a able to wear it with style. Like the Phoenix exuberant and soaring into the sky after emerging once again out of the fire. That is how I felt two years ago, after chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a second open heart surgery. As I climbed out of the ashes, even with a few tail feathers missing, I’m still fighting to live again.
